    I love system 11 games, so what is your favorite! Here is a list of 'em and please let me know if this list is wrong or needs a title added to the list.

    Bad Cats
    Banzai Run
    Big Guns
    Black Knight 2000
    Bugs Bunny's Birthday Ball
    Dr Dude
    Elvira ATPM
    F-14 Tomcat
    Game Show
    Grand Lizard
    High Speed
    Mousin' Around!
    Police Force
    Pool Sharks
    Riverboat Gambler
    Road Kings
    Space Station
    Swords of Fury

    Personally, I would love a Dr. Dude in my collection. I have never played a Fire! game that was working well enough to know if I would like it or not. Jokerz! and Mousin' Around! are fun - I have toyed with the idea of having games with "!" in the name. That would be...Radical!

    #3 7 years ago

    My favorite is Pin*Bot. It's the game that really got me hooked on pinball back in high school.

    Whirlwind is my favorite but Jokerz! is my sleeper pick. My local arcade had that along with Whirlwind, Pinbot and Funhouse and it got played just as much as any of those others, possibly more.

    #6 7 years ago

    Bk2k for the win.

    #8 7 years ago

    Earthshaker, Swords of Fury are my favorites at present. F14 and Highspeed are the other 2 I played, and are fun...

    #9 7 years ago
    #10 7 years ago

    SoF .....Lionman!!!!

    #11 7 years ago

    That's a tricky one bc it's actually wpc and not system 11

    #12 7 years ago

    Fire or Whirlwind for me I think.

    For the lulz we could include a lot of DE games which are cloned hardware Then it'd be Torpedo Alley, no question.

    #13 7 years ago

    banzai run by a land slide

    #14 7 years ago

    If FH and BoP are out, I might have to vote for Taxi, though Pinbot would be the sentimental favorite.

    runners up: WW and SoF

    #15 7 years ago

    I was always firmly in Elvira's and Taxi's corners until Game Galaxy Nashville brought in Radical! That game is fantastic and is clearly my number 1 sys11 now. It's so packed with stuff and campy goodness it's unbelievable. Check out these pics!

    Only played about 5 on the list, but Earthshaker is my favorite. Simple, but a game that keeps me coming back.

    Sys 11 is my favorite era.

    I haven't played most of them, but so far my favorite is Space Station. Taxi is really really fun too. Want them all!!!!

    #19 7 years ago

    I own Sof which I love. BK2K is another one of my favorites I would love to own it one day.

    I thought Getaway: HS II was a sys11? I definatly love that one.

    EDIT: Yeah looked up Getaway. Apparently that one has a DOT matrix display. I was playing that one so hard and enjoying it so much I never even noticed the display when I played it.

    #21 7 years ago

    Whirlwind , Diner, Funhouse. Honorable Mention to Rollergames and Dr Dude.

    Having owned a Space Station, I can attest to its appeal. Great music and light package in a challenging pin!

    #23 7 years ago

    Radical is a great game - overlooked, it's a flow and ramp monster.

    #24 7 years ago

    I would kill for a diner , banzi run, high speed, and space station, i already have the other 4 I would kill for.

    #25 7 years ago

    I really enjoyed playing a Dr. Dude on location in London today.

    Out of the other System 11's that I have not yet owned, I would love to have a Swords of Fury, Radical!, Taxi and a Whirlwind in my collection.

    BK2K is by far my favourite System 11 though.

    #26 7 years ago

    I'd go with Pinbot closely followed by Swords of Fury.

    #27 7 years ago

    Whirlwind all the way! It's my favorite pin of all time! Then followed closely by Taxi and Earthshacker! And for the pips who said Funhouse that is not a system 11 it's a very early WPC. No worrys I made the same mistake

    #28 7 years ago

    Cyclone gets my vote. It is one of my keepers. Best single ball pin ever IMO.

    #29 7 years ago

    BK2K, EATPM, and F-14

    If I had to pick one, is would probably be BK2K

    #30 7 years ago

    I have most of the Sys11s in my collection. My favorite era of Pinballs.

    Taxi and Diner would be among my favorites. Dr Dude is also great. The reason Sys11s are so cool is the skill factor involved. Reasonably easy to understand rulesets (generally collect 5 shots on one ball, go for jackpot within 10 seconds) but oooooooh so challenging to do on a regular basis.

    As opposed to my new ACDC premium which I've owned for a month and still can't figure out how the scoring works lol

    Cyclone is my wife's favorite of all my Pinballs. She walks past all the DMD "gold titles" and just plays Cyclone all the time.

    Banzai Run is the holy grail of Sys11s ... I have one which has been in storage for 10 years, hope to have it all fully rebuilt this year


    #31 7 years ago

    FINE! If i can't have funhouse, I pick Diner!

    #32 7 years ago

    EATPM is #1 for me. Followed closely by F-14 and Taxi. Rollergames is great too but I can't get past the sounds.

    #34 7 years ago

    Whirlwind for me. Ohhhh, give me shelter.

    #36 7 years ago

    #1 - PinBot, #2 - High Speed, #3 - Taxi. These were the pins I grew up with and still love to play them.

    #37 7 years ago

    Banzai Run. Not even close.

    (I do have a soft spot for Swords of Fury, though).

    #40 7 years ago

    pinbot,high speed,mousin around,whirlwind in no specific order.
    taxi is also good. there are several i have not played. oh,i'm also fond of roller games.

    3) Taxi
    4) Whirlwind
    5) Earthshaker
    6) Space Station

    Those are the ones I have either owned or played quite a bit. I do hear good things about Banzia Run, which I have never played.

    #43 7 years ago

    i have 4 system 11's My votes
    4)Police Force

    If i owned a Banzai Run it would be on top.

    #46 7 years ago


    I rather enjoy my Pin*Bot, but I haven't played anywhere near all the Sys 11s, so I'm not overly in a position to say. With that said, Pin*Bot's a good solid game, nothing too elaborate, and other than the topper, relatively inexpensive to have kicking around. There's really something to be said for System 11s: they focused on fun without being overly elaborate. And I find that really nice every once in a while.


    #47 7 years ago

    I gotta go WhirlWind...the game that really got me to the next level of Pinballery. HS second...just played it for an hour at my bros house tonight. So simple, so well done.

    #48 7 years ago

    High Speed > everything. Unlike others, my opinions are actually fact. It's a mutant power. Only I have it.

    #49 7 years ago
    Quoted from NimblePin:

    My top "11", 'System 11' games...

    I like it, I like it! But you cheated on #5 and #10...
